Portions of the ANV made it to the rendezvous point at Amelia Court House via Nazomine Road.
Here are some photos I took along the route on Tuesday, from Sutherland Station to Nazomine Church to Amelia Courthouse to Jeterville and ending at New Hope Church, near Appomattox.

On the morning of April 9, those who had made it that far were dug in near New Hope Church in Vera, just east of Appomattox Court House. Here they would receive word of the surrender, rather than fight one last desperate battle.

Come on down to Vicksburg in October, Ernie. I will be the first one to vote for a tour of Appomattox Courthouse in 2020. That would be a great thing to see.
I've been to Vicksburg a couple times and would like to get there again. I'll have to see how work schedule is as we get into summer.
